Forcing insulin prices down

Senator Dave Hansen hopes Wisconsin follows Colorado’s lead when it comes to keeping insulin affordable for its users. According to a 2016 medical journal piece, insulin prices have nearly tripled since 2002. As a result, one in four insulin users have asked their doctors for cheaper medication or have tried to ration their supply to get by. A Democratic-led bill would follow in the footsteps of a law passed in Colorado earlier this year capping the price at $100 a month. Senator Hansen says for some, it is the matter of life or death.

The Green Bay lawmaker has also reintroduced a revised bill to allow college students to refinance their debt and allow people with bad or no pension program to buy into the state’s. In both cases, he says Republicans need to sign on for them to have a chance of passing.
